Greg Oden to be re-evaluated in a week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters that he wants to increase forward Greg Oden's workload in practice before he is re-evaluated in a week. Oden still hopes to make an appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Pacers, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Oden was bothered by back spasms in the second half and was limited to only 23 games this season. He has yet to play in the postseason, despite being listed as active for the first round of the playoffs. In those 23 appearances, Oden averaged only 3.0 points and 2.2 rebounds per game in just 9.2 minutes per game.

"After the back, he's been working really to get back out on the court. In the last week or 10 days, he's really been able to amp up his workouts," Spoelstra said. "I want him to have a couple more very tough workouts this week, and we'll evaluate him at the end of the week."

Greg Oden could remain a starter


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) The Heat still aren't convinced Greg Oden can play big minutes while staying healthy, but they are starting to believe in his ability to be a consistent contributor. Oden started his second game in a row Tuesday against the Cavaliers, and coach Eric Spoelstra told the Sun-Sentinel he thinks that change could stick.

"My board in my office at the arena looks like the character from Beautiful Mind," Spoelstra said, "and so I have a lot of different scenarios. So it's one of the many scenarios that I've chewed on for the last six weeks or so."

The Heat has won two titles in the last two seasons while playing a small lineup that features Chris Bosh at center. However, with Bosh extending his shooting range to beyond the three-point line, the team can maintain offensive spacing even with a traditional big manning the middle.

Oden has appeared in just 19 of the team's first 64 games, after missing three full seasons due to a number of knee injuries. He is averaging 2.7 points and 2.2 rebounds in 8.3 minutes per game. 


Greg Oden still not playing back-to-backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Heat center Greg Oden is inactive for Tuesday's game against the Rockets, but coach Eric Spoelstra stressed to reporters that the big man is not dealing with any physical setbacks.

“It’s just based on all that [Oden] has prepared for so far,” Spoelstra told NBA.com before the game. "We just told him we don’t want him to play [both nights of] a back-to-back right now.”

Oden played just five minutes Monday against the Bobcats, but has appeared in each of the team's last four games. He is averaging 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds per game in 14 appearances, after missing three full seasons due to knee issues.   


Greg Oden earns first start since 2009


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Heat center Greg Oden earned his first start since 2009, but did little with his time on the floor Sunday against Chicago.

Oden, who got the starting nod for an injured LeBron James (nose), scored five points and grabbed five rebounds while logging 13 minutes of game action in a 93-79 win. He is averaging just 3.3 points, 2.3 rebounds in 7.0 minutes over his last three appearances.

Greg Oden making small impacts


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Heat center Greg Oden appeared in his fourth game of the season Thursday against the Lakers, and might have had his best performance yet in a 109-102 win.

Oden, who has been eased back into the rotation after missing nearly four years with knee problems, played 10 minutes in the game, his highest total yet. He scored five points on 2 of 5 shooting, and added five rebounds and one block in the win.

Oden is likely to continue receiving plenty of rest, and is probably not fated to be worked into a full-time role at any point this season. 


Greg Oden makes long-awaited return to action


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Heat center Greg Oden made his oft-delayed return to the floor Wednesday against the Wizards, his first regular season action in more than four years thanks to a number of knee issues.

Oden, who sat out the first 37 games of the season rehabbing his knees, played just eight minutes in the game, but managed to make an impact. He scored six point on 2 of 3 shooting and added two rebounds in those eight minutes, and was one of just two players to register a positive plus-minus in the 114-97 loss.

Oden told reporters after the game he felt fine in his first action since 2009, but will need to see how his body reacts to the game experience before his status moving forward is determined. Oden has been inactive for all of the season prior to Wednesday's game, but the trade of Joel Anthony seemingly moves him up in the rotation. 


Greg Oden active for first time Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) With the trade of Joel Anthony and an injury keeping Chris Andersen, Heat center Greg Oden is active and in uniform for the first time Wednesday against the Wizards. Whether he will play in his first regular season since 2009-10 is still up in the air, but the Heat have just one active center on the roster for Wednesday's game.

Oden has yet to play this season while working his way into shape from a number of knee surgeries. 


Greg Oden stays back in Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
